Nice lift! How comfortable is your '77 with that seat you made? Any planned long trips anytime soon?

It is pretty comfortable, I have done a lot of full day rides and been fine.  It is a firm pad so that helps also, I am actually getting the 78 seat redone because they used a much softer pad and you can feel the seat pan which hurts after a few hours riding.

Here are some before and after shots of the caliper and master cylinder upgrades
- Brembo rear master
- Nissin 5/8 front master
- Honda (refurbished) dual piston front and rear calipers

They turned out sweet, I can't wait to ride it to test them out!  I am waiting for a 10x1.0 double banjo switch for the Brembo.

I love both of these bikes!  The blue one is my favorite, but the brown one is sexy as hell too...nice job on them both!
